I am not, alas, the universe is against me on that one as the husband is terribly sick and also not here till Wednesday.

I am going to assume you are talking about herbal tea, lol. Sorry you are still feeling sick . Did you have this much ms with your dd's?

I had a mild case of HG with my last pregnancy and somewhat with the first as well. With #1 I was sick until about 20 weeks, then sick again at 36 weeks until delivery. With #2 it was about 25 weeks, and more severe, I was on fluids several times. This one is by far the worst. It started earlier (5 weeks vs closer to 8 with the others), I'm way sicker, and it appears to be lasting longer as well

Maybe this baby will also be the best behaved or best sleeper too! There should definately be a reward for all the puking. Hugs, I hope you feel better soon.

sorry talula, what a horrible way to spend your pregnance. "endure" is the word here.


I had a 0.1 higher temp for the last 2 days, which is a pattern I had last cycle, too. if this a particularly weak type of ovulation?? I know I have to wait if cm dries up to give me my answer but some wondering needs to take place right now.


snow~pea, hi!

hey everyone!

oceane you're right, it is similar to your last cycle's O. I'm not sure what it means to have such a weak temp spike. I hope its not O yet though, because didn't you say your dh was gone til today? Tell that eggy to stay put for a couple more hours!

I forgot to temp this morning, so nothing to report. cp did seem more fertile yesterday though. I'll have to wait and see what it does today. Guess we are both in the have-no-idea-what-is-going-on phase of our cycles. Hopefully we'll both have some answers by this weekend.


Hey Jen, where are you at with your cycle?

this timing thing is difficult, Jen

snow, he left Tuesday morning so Monday was still busy. I did have some more cm today so I'm probably still pre-o.

Jen, exactly, who cares about romance, it's all about what you have to do

that said, ff has decided on an o date for me so I'll take it. I think timing went very well. I'll try not to think about it for the next 10 days, but of course I will do so all the time. including updating a potential names list and checking in here often

Hi ladies, I got back from my business trip to Toronto last night.

DS developed an abscess while I was gone after having his first cavity filled a few weeks ago. They pulled the tooth, a molar while I was flying home yesterday afternoon. Poor little man.

I was the only woman (out of 24) on my trip, as usual. And waddling with the back pain this LO has me in. Such fun! However, I think he turned head down while I was away, he had been stubbornly transverse. I am 30 weeks tomorrow.

DS did not ask to nurse last night and of course, he missed 4 night while I was away. So hopefully that is it and he has weaned himself. Not that nursing him once a day was too much of a burden but I wouldn't mind a break for 2 months before the new baby comes. And he is 5,

Hope everyone is extra fertile this month, I think May is a good month to conceive!

Me (42), DH (41), DD (7), DS1 (5) and DS2 Aug 02/09

Yay for ovulating oceane and Jen :! Hopefully I will be joining you soon in the 2ww.


Welcome back VM! Your poor son, I'm sure he was glad to have you back. Has your back pain calmed down at all since you started seeing the chiro?

Hi! I'm usually a lurker, but I was so excited to find this thread! My husband and I started TTC last cycle. We've been married almost four years. He's not vegan (maybe someday!), but I've been vegan for two and a half years. No one else knows we're TTC, so it's nice to have online support!

Vegan mama looking forward to meeting my baby in July 2010!

Good luck on the two week torture, i mean, wait...
Go little eggies, GO!

Hello becksteracious! To tell or not to tell the world... If you don't tell people, you'll get "OH! A surprise baby!" or "I didn't even know you were trying!" & if you tell people you are ttc, then you get "Any news yet?" over and over again....always full of opinions, people are... Any how! Good luck!!


And good luck everyone! VM is right, May is a good month to conceive!!

: totally in love , vegan & mountain dwelling mama to my girls ❤ 5.2003 & 10.2009 ❤

welcome becksteracious! how do you guys prepare meals at home? does your husband eat "your" food out of courtesy or do you guys prepare separate meals? just wondering.
this thread is full of supportive ladies :

cinnamon, how are you feeling?

vm, the joys of being a "pioneer" woman in a male-dominated field, huh? I wonder why established gender roles in careers change so slowly. sorry your back is still hurting

Thanks ! I got a high temp today, so I might have ovulated...on CD19... which would be my normal! Its only happened around 5 times in the last 2 years so this would be a very big deal.

Ugh, I think that is the worst part of this all...we chart our temps and track every other sign of our cycles, and still don't get clear answers from our bodies most of the time. I guess it won't matter once we get our bfp's. In the mean time, you'll have to tell your dh that he is back on duty. Good luck with that. I don't know about yours, but mine is definately ready for a break, lol.

same here. I don't know what I think so maybe I'll just stop temping for now and wait for AF/no AF?

Its funny, I think we both always come back to this. Stop temping to cut back on stress, but then would you still be stressed with the not knowing? I really don't know. I say do what you feel right now, and if you change your mind later you can always start/stop temping again.

oceane, I think you did ovulate. And it seems much more obvious when I view your chart in fahrenheit. Keeping my : for you.

FF confirmed my O on cd19! I feel so normal, lol.

thanks for the warm welcomes!

i'm sure i'm in the minority here, but i'm not charting yet. last month i knew when i was most fertile because i happened to have my PAP right at that time and the doctor told me i was very open, high cervix, etc. this month i've just been using an OPK. i should be at the beginning of my fertile window right now, but so far the predictor tests have been negative. my husband and i are in our 20's, so we've got some time. if we don't conceive this month, i may start temping and charting next cycle.

oceane, my husband and i both eat vegan meals at home. he's lacto-ovo vegetarian, and he eats dairy when we go out to non-vegan restaurants. i'm very lucky because he is the cook in our home and he never complains about making vegan meals. he's also totally on board with raising vegan kids. he's a gem!

Vegan mama looking forward to meeting my baby in July 2010!

Hi fertile vegan ladies!

My parents are visiting so even less time for posting than usual. Caught a cold on the plane down to Toronto last Sunday and can't shake it. Combined with the SI joint pain, I feel like an old, old, woman lately.
